A rhyming celebration of Afro hair, barbershops and father-son relationships, from hair care coach and author Tọlá Okogwu and rising star illustrator, Chanté Timothy.
Nana’s getting married, and today is the big day! I’m her little page boy; Daddy’s giving her away. “Deji and Daddy, just look at your hair!” Uh oh, we’re in trouble. Nana shoots us a glare. “You better find a barber. You both need a cut. Now hurry along,” she adds with a tut.
It’s the morning of Nana’s wedding, and Deji and Daddy need haircuts – right away! Join them on a race against the clock to make sure they look slick just in time to walk Nana down the aisle. This story features a fun and heart-warming portrayal of the quality time spent between parent and child.
This is the second book in the Daddy Do My Hair series, with joyful rhyming text paired with bold and beautiful illustrations from Chanté Timothy (Hey You! by Dapo Adeola).
